"It's an interesting point when we talk about the number of players allowed on a map in Call of Duty, when I have been playing COD4 online in a Team Death Match game it can get busy but as soon as you go into an 18 player game with 9v9…it's madness at times. Now with PC gaming, some games have modes of play with 30v30 and some Sony PS3 and Xbox 360 games want this on a console games system."
"Would console gamers want 30v30 online games in Call of Duty and could the Xbox 360 or Playstation 3 handle it?"
"If the maps were made much bigger in Call of Duty 5, then I personally would love to play a 30v30 game, well as long as the host is passed to another player when the host leaves. This would be much more fun for me, but then there are gamers who like things a lot less mad."
